GF Sugar Cookies So Good You Won’t Miss The Gluten

GF Sugar Cookies So Good You Won’t Miss The Gluten

As we end the month of love I wanted to share my GF sugar cookies that are so good you won’t miss the gluten! I got the recipe from my mom, and we had them at our Valentine’s Day tea party. They were the perfect sweet treat without the hassle of gluten. I had to cut gluten a few years back, so you can find more gluten free recipes here and here. The apple crisp is a family favorite, especially during cooler weather.

You all know I don’t like to write my entire life store when I share a recipe, but I do want to leave you with this parting bit. I did some research on the best cookie sheet and found this article extremely helpful! All of these items can be purchased online, so no need to leave the house. Anyone else happy about home delivery options these days?! I’ve linked the pans below as well as a few staples for baking. If you haven’t hopped on the Danish dough hook wagon, now is the time! It makes mixing the dough and the icing easy without bringing out your stand mixer. As always, when you make the recipe- share your pictures with me! I love hearing from you all!


GF Sugar Cookies So Good You Won’t Miss The Gluten

  • Author: Jess Cathell


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese


Preheat oven to 325 F. Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl. Beat white sugar, 3/4 cup butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a bowl using an electric mixer; beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until mixture is smooth. Mix butter mixture into flour mixture and form dough into a ball. Wrap ball with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Roll dough onto a lightly floured surface and cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Arrange cookies on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until edges begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Cool cookies on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. For the icing : beat cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth. Slowly beat confectioners’ sugar into cream cheese mixture until icing is smooth; spread onto cooled cookies.
